STARS v1.0

The New School
OP-3: Indoor Air Quality

Status Score Responsible Party
-- 0.00 / 2.00

This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

The New School's Assistant Director of Environmental Health & Safety works very closely with Parsons staff to monitor and mitigate the use of chemicals and products that may impact indoor air quality in art and design classes. The Assistant Director also addresses with other Facilities staff complaints that relate to indoor air quality. At this time, there is no formal IAQ plan to address the entire campus nor is there constant monitoring.

Futhermore, The New School finds this credit very vague as Indoor Air Quality is not defined and there is no minimum required set of contaminants that such a plan would have to address.
